Because one of your 4 coordinates is an odd one out then maybe
Graphics`PlotField3D' is what you want.  I have used it to show
colour transformations, so I had 3 axes, three dependent values
(the transformed vector) and the vector colour.  If your arrows 
all sit on a regular grid, and the largest vector is smaller than
the grid spacing, then it is usually posible to see what's what
though sometimes you have to fiddle with the viewpoint a bit.

You will have to make a 3-D vector out of your velocity coordinate, 
but that's easy.  I suspect you have 2 other velocity coordinates too.
